(aka Drumhead, Surehead) Introduced to the U.S. by German immigrants around 1840, this variety’s solid blue-green flat heads with white interior weigh 10-15 pounds. It is a hardy garden crop. They provide a subtle, delicate, and sweet flavor, perfect for eating fresh, especially in coleslaws. Excellent for late fall or winter use.
Sow seed indoors ¼" deep 4-6 weeks before the last frost. Harden off. Take care not to disrupt the shallow root system while transplanting and weeding. Plant spacing, 24"-36" apart, in row and between rows. Make sure cabbage has a regular supply of water in full sun. Mulching will reduce weeds and keep moderate temperatures and even moisture in the soil. Cabbage is a heavy feeder and needs an even supply of nutrients.
